Dunkaroo Dip (Cake Batter Dip)
What is Dunkaroo Dip?
Dunkaroo Dip was super popular snack in the 90s. You were not cool if you didn’t have a Dunkaroo in your lunchbox… oh the nostalgia! It was just vanilla cake frosting topped with rainbow sprinkles and cinnamon cookies on the side.
This Dunkaroo Dip is still all the fun, but it has been elevated to meet adulthood. A little more protein, a little less sugar, some fruit on the side. I am not saying it is “healthy,” but it is still a great decadent snack.
Only 4, Maybe 5, Ingredients Needed
- Vanilla Boxed Cake Mix: I use ones which contain pudding in the mix, they tend to taste the best. I used Betty Crocker Super Moist, French Vanilla.
- Greek Yogurt: Plain, full fat variety is best.
- Whipped Cream: I used Cool Whip for ease, but you are more than welcome to make your own.
- Vanilla Extract: This is needed to add more vanilla flavor
Sprinkles: This is optional, but if you are looking for a more traditional Dunkaroo Dip I’d add them.
Dippers: Fresh fruit such as strawberries, apples, or grapes. You can also serve this dip with animal crackers, graham crackers, or cookies. I also like to make Pie Crust Cookies (Pie Crust Chips).
How to Make the Easiest Dunkaroo Dip
Heat treat the boxed cake mix in the microwave to remove pathogens. All you need to do is place your boxed cake mix into a bowl and microwave for four 15 second increments. Be sure to stir the boxed cake mix well between each increment.
Whip together Dunkaroo Dip. In a large bowl add all the ingredients; heat treated cake mix, Greek yogurt, whipped cream, and vanilla extract. Whisk until the mixture is well-combined and fluffy.
Refrigerate for at least an hour, or overnight. This allows the flavors to meld together and amplify.
Serve with your dippers. Mine is served with green apple, strawberries, and chocolate chip cookies.
Frequently Asked Questions
I do not like Greek Yogurt, can I use something else? The best alternative to Greek Yogurt is full fat cream cheese. If you opt for cream cheese make sure it is at room temperature prior to whipping up your dip. You could also use plain yogurt but the texture will be more thin than what you see here.
How can I make this Dunkaroo Dip healthier and lighter? You can easily reduce the sugar in this dip by using a sugar free cake mix, low sugar or fat free Greek yogurt, and even light whipped cream.
Can I use other flavors of boxed cake mix? Of course! You have many options including white, Funfetti, strawberry, cherry chip, and even chocolate. Or use whatever you have on hand.
